I'll probably wind up seeing it. Seems like it would make a good BroNight / ManDate movie.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Metallica's live shows are completely stunning but daaaaang there has been a lot of DVDs lately. They used to do one VHS/DVD video per album (Master=>Cliff'Em,  AJFA=>Seattle '89, TBA=>Mexico '93, Load-Reload=>Cunning Stunts, Garage Inc.=>S&M, St.Anger=>SKOM?) but since Death Magnetic came out they've released the Nimes '09 show, the Mexico '09 show, the Big 4, Quebec Magnetic and now Through the Never. I love the 'Tallica shows, but don't you think five is way too much?

To be fair - Nimes & Mexico were limited to releases in those two countries.

Quebec was the first "proper" worldwide release and Through The Never is more of a movie.

If Through The Never had come out when I was in my adventure days (or if I was of that age today) I probably would have been at the first midnight show, shitfaced and headbanging, because that's perfect midnight movie fodder. Would've been the new Song Remains The Same for the rock crowd.

These days I watch the latter movie and laugh my ass off at the fantasy sequences, though, and really, that's all Through The Never seems to be: a concert movie with an assload of fantasy sequences  :lol

It's a hybrid of both, the events that happen to the kid supposedly correspond with the songs Metallica are playing in the concert.

Lars Ulrich has announced a "secret" Metallica project to come out in December.

No clue what this is. Maybe the dates for the Thru The Never tour ?

Best case scenario is obviously a christmas release of an album that they've been working on in absolute secrecy.

I'm leaning towards the first option though.

I reckon about 10 dates worldwide on the Thru The Never stage to recoup some of the money they spent on the film.

30th Anniversary Kill Em All CD/Vinyl/Boxset ?

All right fellas, saw the movie on Friday but had no internet at home.
The movie is 90% concert which is cool but not new, the crosses coming out of the stage on Master of Puppets were cheesy, lady justice was not Doris, but Cinnabon or possibly Krystal, she looked nothing like the one from Damaged Justice tour and her coming apart wasn't nearly as dramatic or climatic as it was in the Damaged Justice tour, the electric chair from Ride The Lightening competes with the crosses from MoP in the double cheese race and Cunning Stunts Sandman stunt was.. the same as it was in Cunning Stunts, "oh haha stuntman on fire and James acting freaked out".
It was not all lame, the projections of the marching army on One and For Whom The Bell Tolls were pretty cool.
But the scenes with the actor's little story were really well executed IMO. Amazing imagery and great cinematography, pretty morbid, basically it's an anarchist protest that clashes violently with the police and escalates a downtown kinda area into a war zone. Trying not to spoil it, not that there's much to spoil.
This movie would have worked for me had they cared more about what songs are fitting for the kid's story, which runs parallel to the concert, instead of having giving the "career highlights" a higher priority, the movie NEEDED Harvester and Nightmare and could have very well used Sad But True instead of having Hit The Lights, Nothing Else Matters and The Memory Remains.
So overall it fails as a movie IMO but it's worth watching for the acting scenes and the sharpness and quality of music at an IMAX theater.

I wanna see it at least. I think it would obviously be better on a Big Screen with a fuck-off sound system than on DVD in your bedroom.

I just don't see how The Memory Remains has somehow hung on as a live "staple." If you polled 1000 Metallica fans and asked them these two questions:

1. What are your top 30 favorite Metallica songs?

2. Would you be bothered if Reload wasn't represented at all in our live set?

...I pretty safely speculate the answers would go like this:

1. The Memory Remains would not crack the top 25.

2. The majority would answer "no."

If they have such a greasy boner for keeping Reload alive, they should at least give deserving songs like Where the Wild Things Are and Carpe Diem, Baby their fair due.

The Memory Remains is a very good song, but they could give it and Fuel a rest. Prince Charming is my fave track on ReLoad, so I wish they'll play it live, and Low Man's Lyric would be cool too.

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I like The Memory Remains too. If people want to hear anything off Reload, it's going to be the songs they actually know, ie. the singles. If people don't want to hear them, there's very little chance they're going to care about hearing the rest of the album instead.

Death magnetic > Load, Reload and St. Anger combined

However, when it comes to the songs from the latter three albums I enjoy, The Memory remains is certainly one of the better ones.

DM has average songs and awful production and really terrible playing from both Kirk & Lars.

Load is just better on every level. There is nothing on Death Magnetic in the same league as Outlaw Torn or Bleeding Me.

Yeah the songs on DM are really solid, it's just very poor production wise, but I only listen to the GH3 rip which sounds so much better, even if the mix is flawed in places.
